AGC of America’s 2013 Chair of the Year
Todd Hess, Todd Hess Building Company
AGC of America National Convention, Las Vegas, Nevada
Under Todd’s leadership, the Industry Recruiting Task Force drafted a plan for AGC to create an industry recruiting website template that has an attractive look and feel; provides basic information for parents, educators, and young people about the myriad of career opportunities in the construction industry; and is customizable by AGC chapters.
Todd not only marshalled existing resources in the form of using the BuildWisconsin.com website as a foundation, but he also kept the task force engaged and active in the drafting of text and reviewing templates. In 2013 the task force took the project from a wish list to a customizable template that has been rolled out via articles and a webinar, has been adopted by the Oregon-Columbia Chapter, and is being investigated by several others.
